Our Village of Eden Mills is “Going Carbon Neutral”

We are a small Canadian village with an ambitious goal. We are engaging in a grassroots initiative to tackle the urgent issue of a warming planet. We want our children and grandchildren to know that we not only cared but tried to do something. 

Therefore we are aiming to become the first village in North America to achieve carbon neutrality. We launched this project on November 7, 2007.
